Anusol HC Ointment Description

The pain and itching of hemorrhoids is bothersome and embarrassing at times. Squirming in your chair may help for a short time, but people around you may wonder what is wrong. All you want to do is jump up and scratch that itch until it stops. Scratching is not the best idea as this can cause more irritation, abrasions to your anal area, and even cause bleeding. Now you may be susceptible to an infection due to the skin being broken from trying to find relief.

Reduce Your Symptoms as Anusol HC Ointment Shrinks the Hemorrhoids

Anusol HC Ointment can help reduce the inflammation and swelling as well as calm the itching. The two active ingredients of Anusol HC Ointment are Hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid, and Zinc Sulfate, an astringent. When applied topically to the external hemorrhoids, you should wear gloves or a finger cot. For internal hemorrhoids, Anusol suppositories are also available.

Once Anusol HC Ointment is applied as instructed, the Hydrocortisone suppresses your immune system in order to inhibit the production of inflammatory chemicals that are sent to the affected site to begin the healing process as an immune response to an injury or threat. The Zinc Sulfate works as an astringent that will shrink the hemorrhoidal tissues and decrease the amount of secretions they produce.

Conditions Treated by Anusol HC Ointment

Straining from constipation, pregnancy, obesity, sitting for long periods of time, or consistent heavy lifting can cause the veins around your anus to stretch and begin to swell inside or bulge outside and around your anus. Itching can be a vicious cycle as this leads to scratching that causes small abrasions and inflammation and leads to a burning sensation. As your wound heals, Histamine is released and causes itching, and so it begins with the itching becoming more intense and scratching is more aggressive. Break the cycle with a prescription for Anusol HC Ointment and enjoy the relief.

Before Applying Anusol HC Ointment

Pregnancy is a common cause of hemorrhoids that usually develops during your third trimester. Ask your doctor before using Anusol HC Ointment if there are any risks to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx meds you currently take or use, including alternative medicine to determine if Anusol HC Ointment (Hydrocortisone/Zinc Sulfate) is the right product for you.

Anusol HC Ointment Recommendations
